Today, we welcome Michelle Hurn RD and ultra-distance runner, to Hunger Hunt Feast!

Treated with severe anorexia at 12 years old and given a 10% chance of survival by her doctor, she started running cross country as a teenager and began following a vegetarian diet to run faster and be thinner.

Shortly after, she developed osteopenia and had stress fractures in her hip at 18 years old. Desperate for a better life, she added some meat back into her diet and ran cross country in college until she had another stress fracture in her hip which ended her college running career.

After college, she became a Registered Dietician and struggled with advising patients by the dietary guidelines she knew were causing the health problems.

After many years, Michelle decided to go back to her love of running and started competing in marathons and ultra-marathon as an adult. This is what brought her switch to a more meat driven diet and life style, her results will blow you away.


Recommends starting with a goal of eating at least 1 pound of animal protein per day. Prioritize protein and add other foods as needed.
